Overview

Mechanical Engineering keeps the world moving, from bicycles to bi-planes, catapults to cranes, supercars to satellites and everything in between. Mechanical engineers apply the fundamentals of science and mathematics to create practical, useful solutions that the rest of us can use. If it moves or contains moving parts, mechanical engineers are behind it. They use the earth’s energy and natural resources intelligently and efficiently to come up with optimum and cost effective solutions.

Our programme prepares students for careers as professional mechanical engineers with the focus on innovation, analysis and development within a wide range of advanced engineering technologies. The programme, using our 3000m² of specialist and integrated engineering laboratories, aims to develop a strong knowledge of engineering concepts across all mechanical subject areas, so as to form a basis for complex problem solving and innovation in whatever area the engineer is employed. A key feature of the programme is the exposure of students to real industrial problems, where leadership skills are developed through a team working approach.
